'After Earth', directed by M. Night Shyamalan, will hit screens June 7. Apart from acting advice for the movie, Will gave his son a lot of other tips on the movie's set too.

'Probably the best advice he's ever given me is, 'Don't have a girlfriend',' said Jaden, 14. Will laughed off his son's statement, and said the advice is 'for now'.

'At this point, I just want him to establish his dreams, establish his desires. Find out who he is. And blending with another person is very difficult, and a lot of times you can lose yourself in that process. So my encouragement to him is to be honest with anybody that he interacts with. Don't make commitments that a 14-year-old can't live up to,' the worried father said in a statement.

'After Earth', the father-son duo bring to life a strained relationship that unfolds in a world set 1,000 years in the future - after cataclysmic events have forced humanity's migration from the planet.
